Sams Photofact for the Crosley 56FC Radio

For many years, I have been scanning and posting schematics & parts lists like this one for the Crosley Model 56FC tabletop radio, which appeared in a 1947 issue of Radio News magazine. Often, a description of the radio's operation and detailed tuning instructions are provided - sort of like a Reader's Digest condensed version of the Sams Photofact data pack. In this instance, only the schematic and parts list are provided. When the textual content is also available, I usually OCR it and post it along with the graphical stuff. There are still many people who restore and service these vintage radios, and often it can be difficult or impossible to find schematics and/or tuning information. I keep a running list of all data sheets to facilitate a search (see below).

Radio Service Data Sheets

These schematics, tuning instructions, and other data are reproduced from my collection of vintage radio and electronics magazines. As back in the era, similar schematic and service info was available for purchase from sources such as SAMS Photofacts, but these printings were a no-cost bonus for readers. There are 227 Radio Service Data Sheets as of December 28, 2020.
